2013 Roses and Deer EcoPeace Treaty

After a season living within the EcoPeace Treaty structure, the deer were accepted on the property.

EcoPeace Treaty Structure

LLL-V2-EPT-DEER-&-Roses

In the EcoPeace Treaty Agreement between the deer on the property in Rumson, NJ and the 550+ rose bushes, the deer are getting what they need to live: food (plenty of other plants on the property) water (there is a water source), safety (no hunting) and therefore a good place to bear their young.

Note the agreed-upon marker flags in place and the rose bushes, buds, and blossoms are untouched.

These photos show that the deer have eaten the Hosta but since the rose bushes were marked with flags according to the EcoPeace Treaty agreement, the rose bushes are untouched.
